Determining & Managing Hepatitis C Healthcare Costs

Currently, the CDC website states that an “HCV infection becomes chronic in approximately 75%–85% of cases.” This contrasts with Acute Hepatitis C, which is a short-term version of Hepatitis C that lasts 6 months and is typically cured naturally by the body. It’s important to note that Acute Hepatitis C is not the same as Chronic Hepatitis C and that improper diagnosis / HCV management can lead to catastrophic conditions – such as Cirrhosis, Liver Cancer and Liver Failure.
